4 homemade and natural facial cleansers you will love

Not removing makeup is one of the biggest mistakes you can make, always with negative consequences for the health of your skin. Let’s discover how to clean your face with these natural homemade products. 

Bacteria accumulate during the day on your skin and leaving it overnight has negative consequences. Do you know how to prepare your natural makeup remover?

Cleansing is to properly remove dust and dirt so you can sleep with clean skin.

The skin regeneration process takes place while you sleep. If you don't properly remove makeup residue, chemicals, and foundation, your pores won't be able to breathe properly. As a consequence, blackheads, acne, and spots can appear on the skin.

Keep in mind that sleeping with the mascara on will weaken and dry your eyelashes, making them more prone to breakage. 

These are the 4 reasons why you should always cleanse your skin before bed

1. To remove dirt and debris

This isn't something you didn't know, but we might as well point it out, just in case. Throughout the day, the surface of the skin builds up dead skin cells, oil, bacteria, sweat, and other debris. There is also microscopic soot in the air called particulate pollution that settles on the skin during the day that can be damaging. Do you really want to go to sleep with all of that on your face? 

2. Cleansing the face properly before bed gets the “canvas” ready for your nighttime routine

After a gentle face wash, you should follow with a moisturizer —keep in mind that nighttime is the best time to use active ingredients like retinol, or antioxidants. While sleeping, the products can work uninterrupted by the sun, wind, makeup application, or other disturbances as we move through our busy day.

3. Removing eye makeup is not (or should not) be optional

Your eyes are sensitive, and as such, you should be extra careful. Not only that but also your eyelashes and eyelids are full of glands that can easily clog and inflame. No one wants to wake up with swollen eyes! Before bed, it should be mandatory to make sure you remove all traces of makeup in your eyes. This is, to stress it a bit more, the bare minimum you should be doing for your skin.

4. A night cleanse is a way of treating your skin

There are several types of face washes that are medicated, so it’s a quick way to treat the skin. Some washes can treat acne, some others can tighten your skin, there are a lot of options around. So even if you don't have a nightly routine, you could start with this simple step!
